The fact thai officials have agreed to admit an adult to a children's hospital is protaWy a first in Canada, said Dr. Ed pakcs, a psychiatrist and director of the new child and family psychiatric unit. The program aims U> help whole families "use their strengths" to deal with their problem children and them- selves.

The staff must get their point across to mothers and fathers "without threatening their already fragile role as said Dr. Pakes. He said staff members in psychiatric wards can no longer afford to think of par- ents as "bad people" who've messed up a child's life. An important ingredient for success is parents' willingness to co-operate in the scheme. The program involves as- sessment of a youngster's problems and a start towards some form of treatment which will be carried on after the patient is discharged. Plans now are to keep a patient no more than eight weeks.

A mother and baby girl, who became the unit's first in-patient team, were after the woman admitted she had aggressive tendencies and was afraid she would some day harm the child.

The turning pohit In this case came when the bahy crawled on to her mother's hospital bed and lay weeping and clinging to the pillow. The child had lost enough of her fright to mourn for the mothering she never experienced, the doctor said. Because the mother was present to see what was going on, she was able to understand more readily and had constant professional help with her own readjustment. In this case, It was a matter of preventing another "battered baby" case from showing up one day in the emergency ward. lose lives in sinking MANILA (AP) teams reported today that 77 persons are believed tfl died in the sinking of Hie inter-island cargo ship Belhjwen in Sunday night between snd Cebu.
